|The Math-amphetamines - 1 + 1 [LLR013] - John Berdahl, Andrew Johnson|
This is what happens when you lock John (of the Blue Fairy Godmothers) and Andrew (of Lava-Proof Boots) in a room with a bunch of keyboards and a computer for a month: an album with a bile-filled synthetic doo-wap song, noisy keyboard punk and plaintive ballads set in outer space.

LibriVox recording of Triplanetary, by “Doc” E.E. Smith. Read by Mark F. Smith. “Doc” E.E. Smith pretty much invented the space opera genre, and Triplanetary is a good and well-known example. Physics, time, and politics never stand in the way of a plot that gallops ahead without letup. Having earned a PhD in chemical engineering, it’s understandable that the heroes of Smith’s story are all scientists...
